The show of the world, seen by Garry Winogrand


BarcelonaGarry Winogrand (New York 1928 – Tijuana 1984) said he photographed the world to see how it looked in photographs. And from the amount of photos he got to take, it’s obvious he wanted to eat it. When he died he left 2,500 carts undisclosed and 4,100 without going into contact sheets. Winogrand is known for his voracity, he was a compulsive photographer. The 169 images on display from tomorrow at the KBr of the Mapfre Foundation are a brief tour of his entire career, focusing on the 60s, 70s and 80s in the United States, which has always been the goal of his camera. The streets of New York, Austin and Los Angeles, the people who pass through them, the parties, the animals, the road trips, the politicians and the demonstrations of a turbulent time appear in these photographs, but from a very optical point of view. personal: Winogrand does not intend to document reality, but to suggest new readings.
